Brent Oakes is currently living in San Antonio, Texas. He went to Trinity University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Trinity University. While finishing his undergraduate degree he took a sculpture course at UTSA and this is where he found enjoyment in working in the plastic arts.
Wired Up is a piece made entirely from steel rebar wire. Brent remembers playing with bead puzzle toys at the doctor’s office, so he wanted to create something reminiscent of it but in the perspective of adulthood. Brent brought his own personal twist into the piece by incorporating the aesthetic of early computer graphics.
